Ukraine has always been anti-Russian. Do prisoners like their guards? My next door neighbors are hard working, family-oriented, Ukrainian immigrants. They will provide an earful to anyone who will listen about Russia.

I don't expect the Taliban to like the US either.

Water is wet too.

Mr. Putin is still looking for any excuse however thin to justify invading Ukraine.

)) Well if this is not a fine example of a statistically significant sample, I don't know what is!

Putin, you will never own Ukraine. Get over it.

Medvedchuk is actually very much a Ukraine patriot, the only thing is that he is open to dialogue with Russia unlike the rest of the Ukrainian government. Which is why they're trying to get him behind bars for a laughable reason.

If they were to really to crack down on businessmen with ties to Russia, the Ukrainian president himself would be in question, seeing as he's got his production company selling content to Russia.

If Russia returned Crimea back to Ukraine, then maybe they'd become less anti-Russia.

It's not like the Ukrainians are saying to Putin, "Oh, just invade me a little bit more, Big Guy, and don't forget to keep the pieces you like."

Medvedchuk would turn Ukraine into a Russian vassal, exactly what the Russians want. He calls the man who invaded his country and killed his own people a "personal friend". I wouldn't trust him.

True. I'll still believe them over someone paid $0.50 per post.

A democratic and prosperous Ukraine is a threat to the current authoritarian rule in Russia.

Russia is fighting a hybrid war against Ukraine. Lies, propaganda, energy blockade, terrorism against Ukrainian citizens, cyber attacks against Ukrainian infrastructure, deny, deflect, when there is clear PROOF for each of these things being done by Russian State organizations. Ah ... like deniers in comments - all part of the hybrid war.

Russia as an occupying power in Crimea according to UN resolutions. UN General Assembly resolution 71/205

Russia shot down MH17, killing 298 people. A trial was held where the people responsible were charged and found guilty. They will never leave Russia, to avoid prison as required by the court's findings.

1.5M people have been forced to leave their homes in Crimea.

Russia routinely violates The Minsk Agreements. This is fact. (Protocol of 5 September 2014, Memorandum of 19 September 2014 and Package of measures of 12 February 2015)

Russia violated territorial integrity of Moldova and Georgia using similar "protecting Russian speakers" in those countries as pre-text.

Russia loves when the "West" is busy with other things. That let's them make movements that cannot be countered quickly.

Friendly nations don't invade their friends. Russia and Ukraine are not friends. Get away from the govts and the people will probably get along fine.

A democratic and prosperous Ukraine

Yet your 'neighbors', who apparently are your only source of news about this matter, have immigrated, like many others.
